It's A Happy Day

My colour choices on this turned out rather bland but I do like it  and because it is for a young lad  I kept the embellishments to a minimum! I do love the image and I made the ice cream cone dimensional so IRL it does have some 'pop' to it. This fab image is from the Jan 2014 release at DoodlePantry, see here for all the new images. This stamp set comes with pre-coloured images, outlines you can colour yourself, digital papers and sentiments!
